IEEEXplore watch: Charge Pump Overview

(Apologies to those behind the pay-wall)

* "Charge Pump Circuits: An Overview on Design Strategies and Topologies"
Due to the continuous power supply reduction, charge pumps circuits are widely used in integrated circuits (ICs) devoted to several kind of applications such as smart power, nonvolatile memories, switched capacitor circuits, operational amplifiers, voltage regulators, SRAMs, LCD drivers, piezoelectric actuators, RF antenna switch controllers, etc. The main focus of this tutorial manuscript is to provide a deep understanding of the charge pumps behavior, to present useful models and key parameters and to organically and in details discuss the optimized design strategies. Finally, an overview of the main different topologies is also included.
